THE “NEVER” LIES…
By Guest Blogger: Shea Crawford
I woke up one morning, and all I could hear was… “Never give in to the never lies…” “Never give in to the never lies…” … I don’t remember having a bad day prior, or a restless, sleepless night, but this one thing rang out in my heart over and over and over again… it was as if I’d need it for life.. and I do. Funny thing is, we all do. EVERY single discouraging suggestion comes from the enemy. And every single thing that comes from him is a LIE. It’s math. It’s easy — but… What lies have you allowed to take a deep seat in your heart? What defeats have you wrongfully accepted? The enemy will always strike where your hardest battles are fought. And though turbulence is his greatest weapon – defeat is his fate. So WATCH what you allow to linger in your ear gates… And watch what you say, because that’s what you’ve accepted. …Watch what lurks; trample lies with truths. Never, ever, don’t you ever believe…
Never give in to “the never lies.”
– You’ll never start your business. – You’ll never succeed. – You’ll never be forgiven. – You’ll never forgive. – You’ll never get over it. – You’ll never be good enough. – You’ll never be loved. – You’ll never be healed. – You’ll never finish. – You’ll never have kids. – You’ll never lose weight… This list will go on, but only if you let it. And Jesus didn’t debate with the enemy, so neither should we. As the father, the author, and creator of lies… If he’s talking, you can trust, it’s unbelievable. Life or death? It’s in your reply .. because as a man thinketh, so is he.
Sometimes the enemy comes against us with the biggest and best lies. He discourages us and tries to rip the desires of our hearts away. For some, he says you’ll never be delivered, or whole, or at peace being single, or married. Never believe those “never lies.”
Watch what you accept.
Watch what you expect.
Pay attention to what you believe.
Watch your speech.
You can, and you may….
You will have whatever you say.
PRAY for God’s best and remember He’s a good Father. A child has access to his Father’s good favor.
“…For God has said, “Never will I leave you. Never will I forsake you.”
If there is a “never,” that sticks around.. that lingers long and won’t let up… make sure it’s based on faith and not fear, make sure you recognize the voice you hear.
Never. Give Up.
Never. Give In.
Never ever, don’t you ever…
NEVER give into the “never lies.”
